GENERAL

The natural slate pieces are expertly embedded by hand into a pre-cast concrete core. This rippled texture allows the water to gently flow downwards over the slate pieces and 'dance' as the droplets catch the light from different angles and levels. A simple design that is timeless and can be beautifully incorporated in traditional or contemporary gardens. 

The spheres are particularly stunning when positioned among plants such as ornamental grasses or boxwood.  Other design possibilities include grouping the spheres together in differing sizes to create a large and stunning feature. 

Please get in touch if you'd like to discuss the possibilities in more detail or just require some guidance. 

FAQ ON SLATE SPHERE WATER FEATURES

1) Is it best to keep the pump on continuously rather than off and on when wanting to use it? (No, it's a decorative feature so you can have it on / off as required.). 

2) Do you need to regularly change the water?  No

3) Do you suggest a particular product/chemical to keep the water clean? Here is a link 

4. Do I need an electrician ? 

You need an outdoor power socket ideally within 10m of the feature (The pump has 10m of cable). 

Do I need a plumber? 
No plumbing required as the same water is recycled around the water feature. Just top it up with hose from time to time if there is any evaporation. 

Should the top rim of the reservoir be level with the ground level ? 
We recommend you have it 10 or 20mm higher than the ground level to prevent soil washing into the basin during heavy rains. Once the reservoir lid is covered with pebbles or cobbles you'll not notice. 

Do I need a concrete foundation until the reservoir ? 
Only if you have bought the 900mm sphere and the ground conditions are very wet or unstable. In the vast majority of cases, a nice level bed of sharp sand (100mm deep) makes a good base. Just make sure it's nice and level. 

How are these featured delivered?

Creating a space of senerity and calmness.

Took a quite a bit of effort to get it installed due to the weight and need to have it balanced inorder for the water to flow evenly but worth it. We just love our garden water feature it has brought a beautiful energy into our garden both day and night and all visitors have remarked on its beauty and sense of senerity.

Excellent product with excellent service

The service provided in supplying this was excellent with all my initial queries being quickly answered and a post installation problem with pipe connections being quickly resolved. The ball was relatively easy to install (albeit heavy!) and the end result is extremely pleasing.
